Force Field returns to Paloma on February 28th with our first party of the year. We’re overjoyed to invite Berlin’s prime dance floor experimentalist Errorsmith for a rare appearance as a DJ, to kick off the new decade with a bang.
Esteemed German producer Errorsmith has been releasing trailblazing club sounds since the mid-90s, pushing the boundaries of electronic music either as a solo act or part of the duos MMM (with Fiedel) and Smith N Hack (with Sound Stream). Currently part of the PAN roster, he’s put out a couple of excellent releases including a stellar collaborative EP with Mark Fell of maverick dance tunes.
Errorsmith’s fourth solo full length, the brilliant “Superlative Fatigue”, marks a defining moment in electronic music of the 2010s. Not only is the album a successful marriage of experimentalism, functionality, euphoria and joy, it is also quintessential Errorsmith; that stripped-down-but-infinitely-elastic idiosyncratic sound that Errorsmith has come to stand for since day one.
Errorsmith’s sonic signature transcends into his DJ sets, pushing the boundaries of dance music to their very limits, and sidestepping the tyranny of genre-rigidness.
Force Field is truly humbled to present Errorsmith, one of our heroes and prime motivator for residents RO Zar (Fantasy Forever) and Misantrop (Foul-Up, Glass Knot).
Brace yourselves for a melty, mind-boggling, blissful night of dancing till your feet hurt.
Berlin’s Errorsmith has been a respected figure in Germany’s club scene since the mid ‘90s. Through his own releases and his collaborations as part of MMM (with Berghain resident Fiedel) and Smith n Hack (with Soundstream/Soundhack), Errorsmith plays with the boundaries of dance music genres for an openness leading to new rhythmic and sonic shapes. Rooted in the club, his music is crafted with an ear for experimentalism, making for some deliciously intriguing physicality. His DJ mixes share a similar philosophy, disregarding genre norms in favor of body-moving eclectic musicality. Renowned for his popular synthesizer plug-in Razor, developed for Native Instruments, his self-built software instruments form the basis of both his productions and live sets. Some 20 years into his career, 2017 saw the release of the long awaited ‘Superlative Fatigue’ album on PAN.
Force Field is an event venture gathering the sonic perspectives of selectors RO Zar and Misantrop.
Anything goes—it's a vibrant melting pot of divergent sounds and disparate tempos, orbiting around bass diasporas, off-kilter riddims, the hardcore continuum, a spectrum of euphoria, modern angularity, oddball gems, and further filth
